Just started working on our China trip (1st time) to Beijing, Xian, Yangshou, Shanghai after originally planning to take a tour group (supposedly the 1st time as we have been travelling independently). The trip will be in late Oct.-early Nov., 2013. Since this will be a short (14 days) and tight IT, we're a bit concerned about topic title. Will appreciate any feedback you can share as far as your experience and how you dealt with same. Most of our hotel reservations were placed with booking.com; domestic flights (3) will be with Ctrip. Re most current info (ex. transportation/subway, opening/closing to sites), where to best check? I have checked most current travel guides available but aware that those are not really that current. Is there any reliable sites I can check other than China Highlight, China Travel Guide? Thank you... I know I will not regret doing this independently no matter what the outcome will be.
